The petition text:
Dear David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt,
We're standing up for higher media standards, and respect for the rule of law.
We demand a stop to the BSkyB takeover, and a full public inquiry into the Murdoch empire's phone hacking activities.
- We can't trust Murdoch's “promises” about respecting UK democracy and media plurality if he takes over BSkyB, while his newspapers stand accused of immoral and criminal activities.
- These allegations prove we need a full inquiry into phone hacking and whether Murdoch is a fit and proper media owner - not another Murdoch media power grab.
Rupert Murdoch's empire is now under investigation by the police. But at the same time, he’s getting ready to take even more control of our media. This week, Murdoch’s expecting to get the green light from David Cameron’s government for his takeover of BSkyB.
The government wants to approve Murdoch’s BSkyB takeover. They say that Murdoch promises to respect media independence, so there's nothing to fear from giving him even more control.They want us to trust Rupert Murdoch!
We’ve got until noon on Friday to prove to the government that the public want to put the brakes on Murdoch’s power grab. We'll deliver our petition to demand no BSkyB deal goes ahead based on Murdoch's promises – on Friday.
Please sign the petition to add your name and build the pressure for Murdoch's BSkyB takeover to be halted.
